DistTech Inc., a provider of dedicated and common carriage for liquid bulk commodities, recently was honored by the Ohio Trucking Association for outstanding achievement in highway safety. With only one recordable accident for the more than 5.8 million miles driven by its fleet in Ohio, DistTech earned the honor in the Large Division (5,000,001-10,000,000 miles) for 2006.
“Day in and day out, our entire driving team remains focused on safely sharing the road and making safety their top priority,” says Randy Vaughn, director of safety for Newbury, Ohio-based DistTech. “This recognition from the OTA is proof that we’re accomplishing this mission.”
DistTech says its driving force of 500 includes more than 30 drivers based in Ohio who have accumulated at least one million miles of accident-free driving throughout their careers.
